//// ENGLISH
Controls:
To Protest - Mouse click on top
To Surf - Mouse click on the bottom
Instructions:
Bottom part - Here you surf on the web, collect the internet stuff to gain points.
Top part - Here you protest against internet limits and grow your GB's ball, Yellow and Red guys help on the protest, Blue guys disturb the protest.

Engine: Unity 5
Team: Solo
Nationality: Brazil

The story of this game came based on current events in Brazil, where companies want to worsen internet services.
This game was created with mobile platform in mind.
In this game you shapeshift from being a surfer and a protester, this is the way I used the theme. Being a surfer, you surf on the internet spending your limited bandwidth doing lots of things of the web and then for you don't run out of internet, you go to the streets for a manifestation and become a protester in favor of an unlimited internet.

If you can, leave a comment, it would be very nice :)

I can't really tell what the point of this game is. I just lost GB when rolling around as a circle.

Not a bad game, gg !

Cool use of the theme. Very innovative, but not fun. I love that vector style. Please opt out of humor if there aren't any jokes in the game.

It could definitely use some instructions! I wasn't sure if I was supposed to keep pushing the ball, couldn't tell I was running out of energy, didn't know what the little "Fight" figures meant.

The vector graphics were awesome though, and the music was really well synced with it. Love the whole "internet surfer" feel!

Liked the music but I can't rate it it seems... Hard to understand what's going on without any kind of instructions on how to play.

Apr 18, 2016 @ 3:23pm

An interesting concept.

Apr 18, 2016 @ 3:45pm

This game needs a proper tutorial (ingame or written) sooo badly. I have no clue what to do.

Getting fast internet is not easy business... Cool concept.

I really liked the polish of the game and the music, although I recognized it from Youtube :)
Interesting idea for a game that might need some more mechanics to be a real hit.

Took me a while to figure out what I was doing, but then it became quite a fun game! Satisfying, if a bit confusing.

I have no clue about what I am supposed to do. However it seems to me really interesting. Need tutorial ++

Apr 18, 2016 @ 5:02pm

I wasn't really sure what was going on, but It felt like if I did I'd enjoy it??

Bom jogo, estás de parabens!

Rakowu says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 7:32pm

Ok it looks great, it looks crazy. But i don't get it. I know the point, but I don't know how to make it xD I only know that i'm doin "something". But it's funny, and i like your music. Maybe try to explain it so we can have more fun with your game :) Please keep it up

Apr 18, 2016 @ 7:35pm

not sure what was the goal here but limited / unlimited web seems like an interesting concept!

Reallysketchy says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 8:01pm

I don't really understand what's going on, but I like the fact that there are two games in one. Like six flags-more games, more fun.

Blobo says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 8:23pm

I wasn't quite sure what the goal was, or why I was dying. a bar showing the amount of energy i have would be nice.

owyoow says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 8:34pm

The game looks good, but I'm not sure what I should be doing and why I die. I think a tutorial would be nice

Onward, free internet! Kind of a greenpeace vibe to it, it's fun to try to take down the red and diabolical regulation.

pixel_maniacs says ...
Apr 18, 2016 @ 11:48pm

It's a very funny idea! Just took me a while to get the idea!
We just played it on our channel and showed it to our fans too!

Like the style of graphics and the soundtrack, but I wasn't entirely sure what I was supposed to be doing.

AnaGF says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 12:10am

Cons: Hard to understand what to do
Pros: innovative, cool minimalistic art, nice idea en clever usage of the theme

Overall, is a good game

Apr 19, 2016 @ 12:18am

Neat idea, although the mechanics felt a little bit poorly explained. A clearer tutorial at the start of the game would really help a lot.

Apr 19, 2016 @ 2:10am

I'm missing something very crucial. Is there any strategy beyond clicking the top when you need more GB?

Apr 19, 2016 @ 2:33am

Graphics were well done, interesting concept. An indicator for amount of energy would be nice.

PickledBrain says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 2:45am

It's good that it tells me what I did wrong but I'm not really sure where my energy is. I don't get the top part. I understand the lower part and totally Agree :D

Nice clicker game. Nice use of theme. Good job overall!

Muel says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:05am

Good game. I just agree with a lack of directions about how the game mechanics work. I kept dying without knowing why.

About the context, as a fellow brazilian, I think this game should be shared everywhere to raise awareness. I suggest posting it on the "Free Internet Movement" page - but I think you already did this.

The context, for those outside Brazil, is this: the ISPs wants to put a monthly download limit on home connexion. When you reach this limit, your bandwidth will be drastically lowered or even cut off until next month. And they're willing to offer 130GB on the most abusive expensive option. All this with the approval of the regulation agencies.

This is why we're so pissed off.

Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:33am

HAHAHAHA, i lold. i love the concept.

WASD says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 4:52am

I dont have a clue what this game is about, but i was entertained :D good job

kestrelgames says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 6:58am

nice graphics/style, I actually think the concept of a split-screen clicker's pretty interesting. you should add a short explanation/tutorial though! :)

Pestel Crew says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:04am

I can't say it's a game, but it is a very important social app. As I understood - if I want to use internet, you have to defend you rights. I think apps like this can change something or at least make people think

Saiodin says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:52am

Interesting concept! It took me some experimenting to understand how the game works. 1. Use up your GB without using too much 2. If you risk losing because an object is ahead that wants more GB than you have go protetst 3. When protesting spam left click, I guess don't walk to the blue guys 4. Before it gets dark/night stop protesting and start using internet again 5 rinse and repeat

Knowing how the game works it is actually quite hectic and makes fun. Without knowing exactly how to play it was just confusing.

PeachTreeOath says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 8:53am

I'd like to imagine an mmo version of this game where you need to divide raiders into protest and internet use groups :)

brainybeard says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:10am

Generally a fun game even if I wasn't quite sure what was going on, how to properly play etc. Yet it is a very well made game. Nice work!!

RealityCheck says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:32am

I liked the graphics. It was a nice looking game. But, honestly - I had no idea what I was doing or why. Some in-game tutorial that explained things would have really helped. Nice effort though, and like I said - I did like the graphics.

redcubegames says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 9:38am

Looks nice, not sure how to play it. Would be nice to have tutorial and enbeded version.

stoarch says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 11:45am

Good game. And very tricky. If I can see energy clearer. Shift of mind is shapeshifting also. Good use of theme

ocarson says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 12:43pm

I really like the graphics, I actually did think it was a little funny, all the guys rocking up with "FIGHT" written on them. Maybe it could use a little work in general but I enjoyed it for what it is.

Fumiko says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:29pm

i liked the basic idea of the game but the gameplay didnt applied to me, one time i was killed by protesting but i didnt understood why this happened

CalmKai says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 1:37pm

Good game!

edve98 says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 3:14pm

I agree with most people - there should be a tutorial (also put quotes on "Jaunty Gumption" in music credits, it looks weird that one song name has them and other does not :P )

Apr 19, 2016 @ 4:05pm

this concept intrigues me!

I wasn't sure how to play it properly but it's an interesting concept. Well done!!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 7:05pm

Nice and fast gameplay!!

Apr 19, 2016 @ 8:14pm

Wow, I like games with a clear goal like this one :)
Good job!

Cool idea but a bit confusing.

jofra says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 10:36pm

Very cool background strory of the game and i liked that you use them to make a game. However, it a bit hard to understand the game itself.

SojaBird says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 11:11pm

First of, wow it has localization :D Nice!

I am not sure what the message behind this might be but I found the game pretty funny :p
It's a balancing act between protest for more internet and spending internet to gain energy for more protest? :p
Never ending loop I guess :p Can you reach infinity? Lol Deep stuff :D good job!

Syldarion says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 11:24pm

This was a really simple concept, and it was really well done! I think it should have been made more obvious that you had to play both sides though. Failed twice before I realized I could switch back and forth.

NightShadow0 says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 11:56pm

Interesting concept. I didn't get that you were supposed to protest to gain GBs until I read the description. It's also tough to see the GB size of the circles when you're rolling so fast with so many circles attached, especially since the size of the circles doesn't really correspond to their GB size. I do like the premise though, pretty funny.

MementoGames says ...
Apr 19, 2016 @ 11:59pm

I liked the art and the craziness.
I don't think I saw an energy meter (played WebGL version) so I was protesting the hell of the government and then I died :(
Cool entry!

PS. Yeah... F*** our ISPs and ANATEL! Greetings from Brazil. :)

medidog says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 1:25am

Overall, very innovative game that is also easy on the eyes :) Hard to figure out how the game works. More specific instructions would be helpful (it's mainly a tapping or fast-clicking game). Once I figured it out, it was quite fun.

Paploum says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 4:48am

Interesting idea to use a game to protest. Well played.

avinashd says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 5:48am

My only criticism is that the game's mechanics aren't presented very clearly. For example, it would probably be better to represent your energy as a number or mention that it was linked to the brightness.

Otherwise, it's a really well-made game, considering the message. The separation between the top and bottom works to convey the game's message really well!

Apr 20, 2016 @ 10:07am

Good concept, maybe an energy bar is necessary.

WitchBoys says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 11:41am

I like the idea but I don't understand how we play to this game. You should did a tutorial!

Apr 20, 2016 @ 12:50pm

xD I´ve really enjoyed the game. Good job!

Apr 20, 2016 @ 3:15pm

Nice Music and interresting game

DSSiege11 says ...
Apr 20, 2016 @ 7:20pm

Really cool idea. Took me a while to understand what I was supposed to do but when I did it was really fun. Reminded me of Katamari ;) Well done!

Simple yet interesting idea. Thanks

gogo199432 says ...

I have no idea how to play this game. It felt like it didnt matter what I do, I lose anyway. Oh well, interesting idea.

Interesting game:)

fafastudio says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 10:36am

Very different from all the other games, innovative ! I enjoyed it, sad it's not longer and that there's no tutorial ^^ well done :)

01101101 says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 12:04pm

As others have said, it's pretty hard to figure out what to do or even what's happening, who we are supposed to fight, what to do with the GBs... The art style is nice, but the gameplay definitely needs to be made clearer for the player.

Fabraz says ...
Apr 22, 2016 @ 2:50pm

Uff, a tad cluttered. Once you look past that, you can find some value actually!

Ithildin says ...
Apr 23, 2016 @ 2:04am

It's a bit odd to play, but I like the concept. I'm all for dealing with social/political issues, especially with a touch of humour. Well done!

derr says ...
Apr 26, 2016 @ 12:19pm

The game is funny and quirky, but I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to do and when I should be switching "shapes". xD

drazil100 says ...
Apr 28, 2016 @ 3:06am

How do i lose?

Apr 28, 2016 @ 8:51pm

Interesting game! I included it in my video compilation series of Ludum Dare games, if you’d like to check them out :) https://youtu.be/ZcRqGTT86gc

Cerno_b says ...
May 1, 2016 @ 2:34pm

Definitely one of the more memorable games. Unfortunately, the gameplay part seems a bit unbalanced. If the goal is to collect GBs, then that is easily accomplished by rolling the ball until you run out of GBs, then spamming the upper screen with mouse clicks until the ball is full. Repeat for infinite GBs.

Maybe more of a challenge would have been nice, as otherwise the game is visually very appealing and your choice of music is spot on. Very nice entry!

rhastapunk says ...
May 2, 2016 @ 8:06am

Nice, it reminds me Katamari :D But i didn't know 100% what I was doing xD

Satyre says ...
May 5, 2016 @ 10:49am

Pretty fun :) I didn't get it the first time I played it, but as I started with a clicking rampage I got the gameplay mechanics. Interesting use of the theme. The music was fitting. I could suggest to put in a better help to hook up the player faster and use some voices for the people to get more immersed. Good job :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
